whatever they sing

This blog is called whatever they sing in homage to the poet E. E. Cummings. Those three words are taken from this part of my favourite poem:

may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

There won’t be many blog posts, but the poetry and fiction pages will (hopefully) be regularly updated, and the Brush Pass Books page contains key information about my bookselling business.
